It's worth a visit and it's recommended to allocate some time to wander around. The museum is huge and has a nice collection.

Always had new and interesting exhibits in addition to the wonderful art they have on display all of the time. We've been members since we came to Boston and it's very well worth it. So much to see.

Certainly a good art museum, but in general, I find the art museums in most big cities very similar. Boston, DC, LA all look the same. Btw, free to students from many colleges in the area!

Beautiful Chihuly installation. Room filled with Monets. So much beauty to take in. A must visit while in Boston. Wish we had more time to further explore.

We came for the Megacities Asia exhibit, which was fantastic and well-curated, and stayed to view the impressive main collection. The museum is wonderful and well worth a visit. The restaurant in the indoor courtyard is delightful, if a bit pricey.
